Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) 11g adapter and/or other applications integrated with Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) fail with error "Operations error - LDAP: error code 80" and "Invalid ECID" when Oracle Access Logger is enabled in OUD.

Application log error:

Steps to reproduce the issue with OVD 11g integration:

1. Create a LDAP adapter for OUD in OVD.
2. Access the OUD data through OVD server using a ldapsearch command. 


ldapsearch -p <PORT> -D cn=orcladmin -w <PASSWORD> -s sub -b "ou=<OU>,dc=<COMPANY>,dc=com" "objectclass=*"

All entries are returned.
3. In OUD server, enable "Oracle Access Logger".
4. Repeat the ldapsearch command and it fails this time as follows:

ldapsearch -p <PORT> -D cn=orcladmin -w <PASSWORD> -s sub -b "ou=<OU>,dc=<COMPANY>,dc=com" "objectclass=*"
ldap_search: Operations error
ldap_search: additional info: LDAP Error 1 : [LDAP: error code 80 - Worker Thread 3 encountered an uncaught exception while processing operation
SearchOperation(connID=<CONN ID>, opID=2, baseDN=ou=<OU>,dc=<COMPANY>,dc=com, scope=wholeSubtree, filter=(objectclass=*)):  Invalid ECID:  <ECID> (]


Issue is reproduced when Oracle Access Logger is enabled in OUD.
